If KS were animated what studio would you want to make it?

Post by ubergeneral » Sun Jun 28, 2009 6:14 pm

Not to be confused with my other topic. I'd like your opinion on what Japanese animation studio you think would do the best job of writing, animating and portraying the KS characters.

We all know that different studios tend to follow different trends. For example Sunrise seems to make fabulous characters and has a fastination with Jupiter.

Ganiax makes many characters and pair them up with a wimp only to have the wimp become manly in the end.

Kyoto Animation is known for Moe-blobs like Lucky Star and K-on.

So I ask who would do the best job here?

And Hisao is voiced by Joshua Seth.

amazing how preference changes now that the game's actually out.
Akira/Hanako for the win. Meiko/Nurse for even more win. Miki/Misha for win that goes BEYOND THE IMPOSSIBLE.

Let's keep Gainax out of it. Those guys have never met an ending they couldn't make bad...

Sunrise, because I know they'd do a fantastic job.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunrise_(company)

Among Japan's largest and most famous studios, Sunrise is renowned for several critically-lauded and popular original anime series, such as Gundam, Armored Trooper Votoms, Vision of Escaflowne, Cowboy Bebop, Witch Hunter Robin, Mai-HiME, Mai-Otome, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, as well as its numerous adaptations of acclaimed manga and light novels such as Dirty Pair, City Hunter, InuYasha, Outlaw Star, Yakitate!! Japan, Planetes, Keroro Gunso, Gintama and several others. Because of the fluidity of much of their work, some fans refer to some of their animation as "Sunrise Smooth."

Sunrise is a pretty good bet, but I'd go with Kyoto Animation, just cause they've had a track record of making VNs into pretty cool anime:

They also did Suzumiya Haruhi, so that's a huge plus in their favor.

I'd say Aquaplus. They were formed by people involved with Leaf and that art style influenced the look of characters in KS. Not sure what they've adapted outside their own content, but it'd be worth consideration.

Probably Bones.

I'd support Gainax and Sunrise... but my heart lies with KyoAni. After Lucky Star, Haruhi, and K-On! I'm more or less a groupie. That being said, it would be interesting to see what would happen if they did do it in terms of tone. Cripple girls isn't something I'd imagine could be in their repertoire. Then again, they are amazing, so they'd pull it off. Sunrise would do a good job, and I think Gainax would be awesomely unique in their approach.
It's a good thing Shizune is deaf, she is the only one who can stand (not) hearing "Wahaha~!" over and over.
